About this cause

The Somerford Estate has 3,500 residents and is in the top 20% of deprived areas in the UK. We support a diverse group of people, predominantly from disadvantaged areas. Our challenges fall into 4 key areas: employability, isolation, mental health and financial hardship. The groups and activities run by the ARC are specifically chosen to address and reduce growth within these areas, using a pragmatic approach.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Our weekly cafe brings like-minded people together for support and activities varying from crafting and bingo to quizzes and monthly music classes. We also provide free 1:1 counselling and the chance to experience the Tovertafel magic table, which is specifically designed to stimulate sensation, relaxation and reminiscence.
